Clarity of mind is something that all of us strive for, but so rarely achieve. It seems like negative thoughts, to-do lists and life’s stresses are always there to fill our brains without any way of stopping them.
Overtime, this can have a huge impact on our bodies. Anxiety, lack of sleep and depression are just a few of the side effects of untreated stress, and it can cause significant damage if we don’t do something about it.
This is great for kids and adults with ADD/ADHD, veterans with PTSD, insomniacs, first-responders (EMT’s, paramedics, law enforcement, firefighters, etc.), anybody with a high stress job, anybody who lives with anxiety, and everybody else who just wants to remove their brain fog to think clearer and faster. Come on, you know you wish you had thought of that witty comeback just a few seconds earlier, right?
It is safe for all ages. No consultation, diagnosis or active patient participation is required. The short 30 minute sessions are ideal for kids or those who can’t sit still for long periods.
Thankfully, staying stressed is a thing of the past, because a solution that utilizes a neurofeedback algorithm was developed by clinical psychologists Dr. Susan and Dr. Valdeane Brown to help solve the problem.
NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is neuro-technology that provides training for the brain, which allows the brain to operate at its very best. This method of therapy is strategically created to talk directly to the central nervous system of the patient, and serves as a natural bio-hack on the brain. The result leaves the patient feeling happier, calmer, and equipped to live life much more efficiently.
To give you a better understanding of NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback, here is a breakdown of how it works:
NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback uses a process where a device is used to give feedback to the patient’s brain using auditory or visual cues that alert them that their brain has had a change in electrical activity.
The neurofeedback device utilizes special sensors that are attached to the patients scalp to gather up data on the electrical activity of the brain. This data is then relayed to an amplifier of sorts that translates the electrical voltage into numbers. From that point, the numbers are changed into brain wave frequencies that are then reable by the device’s software.
The end goal is that the patient’s brain will be educated on how to get out of the bad habits of unhealthy patterns, and instead learn patterns that are much more adaptive.
The devices used to produce these kinds of results are extremely complicated and are considered to be very sophisticated when it comes to health and wellness technology.
In the past, we did not have the knowledge or the computer power to run the devices needed for this kind of therapy, but thankfully, we have reached a point where the cost of computers has become affordable, which means neurofeedback is finally a reality. With today’s technology, the device used for NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is able to measure the activity in the brain and use software that has been created to interpret wave patterns and then sent back in real time for analysis.
While new technology and progressions in this field are exciting, it’s still not enough information for understanding why this method really does work.
When it comes down to it, what are the benefits of this type of therapy, and how is it really going to make a difference? Some of the benefits of Neuroptimal® Neurofeedback include:
Stronger Athletic Mental Performance — More and more athletes who have competed professionally are becoming aware of neurofeedback and are using it to get ahead of the competition. When it gets down to it, physical performance and mental focus that is encouraged by this type of therapy can make all the difference. Whether you are a runner, bicyclist, swimmer, football player or golfer, NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is able to give you the mental clarity that you need to stay ahead of the competition.
Better Health & Wellness — NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is a great solution if you are looking for a mental outlook that is more positive, and that gives you much needed clarity when it comes to connecting your mind and body. This type of therapy can be paired very well with a regular routine of exercise and healthy diet to set you up to be the best that you can be.
Exercise For The Mind — As we age, so do our minds. As this happens, cognitive decline can start to take its toll. With NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback, the negative effects of this decline are able to be mediated and your mind gets the proper exercise that it needs. Over time, the regular practice of this therapy is able to help improve a patient’s memory and better cognitive dexterity over all.
Improved Academic Performance — Instead of using drugs or other means of trying to sharpen the mind, students are beginning to turn to NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback as a solution. This therapy doesn’t have any known side effects and is 100% drug free. If you are a student struggling with staying focused for your exams, this could be the solution you’ve been looking for.
A NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback session last approximately 30 minutes. We have the ability to shorten or lengthen the session if needed. However, the majority of clients will complete 30 minute sessions.
Following a NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback session, patients generally feel much more relaxed, calm, less stressed, grounded, and have more clarity of mind. Some patients leave the session feeling quite tired as a result of not getting enough sleep on a regular basis, and adjust their sleeping behaviors.
As with any therapy, there needs to be clear goals set in the beginning that help determine the direction of treatment that a patient will take. If the patient is hoping for symptom relief, they will usually schedule appointments regularly for 2-3 months and then pause treatment once they are stable. There is a cumulative effect when using the therapy and many people experience changes faster when they do multiple sessions a week for 1 month. Ultimately, it is up to the patient and his or her determination to see goals reached.
NeurOptimal® is an advanced neuro-technology that allows the brain to be trained and unlocked so it can operate at its full capacity and potential. Just like the muscles in your body, the brain is living tissue and can be exercised and strengthened through repetition. This is accomplished by using a software that senses disturbances in the nervous system (electrical signaling) by inserting shifts and interruptions into music that you listen to. These disturbances are mapped through repetition the disturbances in the brain signaling are removed.
Okay, that sounds complicated right? Let’s break it down like this. NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback exercises your brain by having you listen to music that has subtle shifts and inconsistencies put in. It then monitors how your brain responds to those changes, logs those responses, and then trains your brain to function more efficiently, be more flexible, and become more resilient.
Blood Pressure, Heart rate, Muscle Tension, Back Pain, Anxiety, Stress, Jet Lag
Focus, mental stamina, brain function, creativity and awareness, overall wellness, quality of sleep
If you suffer with any of these symptoms, NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback may be for you.
The regular use of neuroptimal neurofeedback therapy will help reduce the symptoms of stress and anxiety significantly once new and healthy patterns have been formed in the brain.
Through neuroptimal neurofeedback, the brain is able to get regular exercise that helps mediate the negative effects of cognitive decline, helping it to gain its strength back.
As the brain is trained to be more balanced through neurofeedback, deep and natural sleep can be restored for a patient who has been struggling with insomnia.
